oncolytic virotherapy can be transductional (the viruses attack only the cancerous cells) or non-transductional(enters other cells but replicate only in cancerous cells).a combination of both isalso used.

Viral therapy induces immune responses which can be fatal however you can try to generate a glyco-protein coating to mask its presence
